Whoopsies, that 240GB is actualy $199. But still cheaper than $209.

Earlier today it was $140 & I had to think about it. :(

I'm guessing NewEgg corrected that mistake pretty quickly after a small flood of orders came in, for it.

Whoa, LAME! I had the 240 opened in another tab from a few hours ago and I just refreshed it and watched the price shoot up to 200 :(

I guess Toshiba wasn't ready to really take the SSD market by storm, was it? ;)

I have been seeing the writes per day on another drive and I was wondering both how would the company be able to measure that they would have to plug it in after receiving the drive back from the consumer to tell you if you went over this immeasurable benchmark? Is there a way to measure data written per day or they take an average of the total divided by the total days the drive has been alive ( or since manufacture date ). Seems like a way for the hard drive companies to get out of honoring the warranty. MPC chime in give it to Gordon to rant on plz!

Well, it looks like this is aimed right at me. 200+ GB at 140 is pretty good IMO.

" 120GB ($120), 240GB ($140)"
Hmm... I wonder which one you should get...

Whoa, that wasn't a typo! Can't click fast enough; does MPC get some "kickbacks" for this order?

Yeah, missed it too.

and if you needed more than 240GB? grab 2x 240GB and save yourself $80...

I used to use OCZ memory and my first SSD was (is) an OCZ Vertex 2, now in a family members computer. I am glad to see them still around.

I'm just happy the two I bought in 2013 will still have their warranty.

That 240GB is a deal. Eat it up! Any word on the power consumption of the Barefoot controller? Will it be under a watt like the Marvell, Intel, and Samsung MDX controllers?
